In Obymed We have always defended that the only effective way to lose weight and/or improve our health through food is by resorting to personalized treatments. Personalized nutrition means meeting the needs of your body and only yours. Your genes influence what your body needs. That is why today we want to talk about nutrigenetics and our genetic test Fragon NutriGen™.
Nutrigenetics What is it?
The nutrigenetics is the study of how our genes affect our response to diet and nutrient intake. And it is that, depending on our genetics, our body reacts in one way or another (cholesterol levels, glucose, hypertension, etc.) to different types of diet.
Why is nutrigenetics important? What information does it provide?
Nutrigenetics helps us identify our nutritional needs based on our genetics. Decision making based on nutrigenetics allows us to choose only those nutrients that our body really needs and helps us improve different aspects of our health, such as:
- Improve general health (feel more active, prevent or eliminate digestive discomfort/pathologies, etc.)
- Optimize our physical shape: Nutrigenetics helps us to know which foods our body processes best to achieve our goals.
- Maintain a healthy weight by finding the balance with foods that, according to our genetics, are best suited to our body weight goal.
